St. Patrick’s Rock

By Linda Tancs

In the heart of Ireland’s County Tipperary, Cashel is one of the most visited sites thanks to the Rock of Cashel.  Known as St. Patrick’s Rock, this elevated limestone peak is the former seat of the High Kings of Munster.  Legend has it that St. Patrick baptized Aenghus the King of Munster there in the fifth century.  The ruins of Hore Abbey, a Cistercian monastery, are at the base of the Rock and provide great views of it.   The area is easily accessible via public bus from Dublin.
